KwaZulu- Natal

Drakensberg Mountains – This area covers a large expanse of mountain wilderness, with the highest mountains in South Africa and the second highest waterfall in the world.

      Royal Natal Park nature reserve has clear mountain streams, spectacular waterfalls, horseback riding and miles of hiking trails. At Thendele Camp, stay in self-catering cottages, right at the foot of the majestic Amphitheatre rock cliffs.
     

Another nature reserve, highly recommended by a local South African family, is uKahlamba Drakensberg Park. Here are towering sandstone cliffs and San (Bushman) rock art. At Kamberg Rock Art Centre, take a guided walk to the Game Pass Shelter to view extraordinary cave paintings.
